Design house DwellStudio looks back to art deco motifs, a bit of disco 70s glamour and influence of worldly travels for it’s fifth collaboration with Robert Allen. This collection is infused with bold patterns and plenty of texture allowing for effortless layering that is cultured and modern. Here are just a few of my faves…

Trying to hold on to the last bit of summer with these baby blue painted brick walls and woven furniture.

If your pinkies and toes are in need of some pampering, I’ve got just the spot for you. Olive & June is a neighborhood nail salon that is just so darn lovely to look at and I bet their manis and pedis will leave you feeling like a brand new woman (or man). This Beverly Hills boutique salon has a California minimal modern feel (designed by TenOverSix) and has kisses of pretty, pale pink, making it perfectly feminine without being overly girly. The talented technicians will keep your preferences on file (i.e.please don’t cut my cuticles or I will cackle like a hyena if you exfoliate my tootsies too hard) and they even have complimentary iPads. I just might have to squeeze in some mani/pedi me time while I’m in LA this week!

I’ve wrote about Big Sur and all of it’s magical qualities before and my last visit was just as serene. The hubs and I were there not too long ago for a friend’s wedding and we decided to stay at Deetjen’s Inn. This inn is a place of simple luxuries with a lot of history and is a must visit during a stay in Big Sur, even if it’s just for a meal. Put your cell phone away (since you will most likely have zero reception) and get ready to decompress, slow down and enjoy God’s country.
In every room is a journal with entries from all the visitors that have stayed at Deetjens.
I still dream of the blueberry pancakes at the restaurant.
Seriously, used a phone book and payphone at the Library to connect with some friends in the area. No cell phone reception is sometimes a good thing.
Until we visit again!
Gettin’ out of the city and channeling my inner “Birds” at a cute, little cottage in Bodega Bay. Make sure ya’ll don’t labor this weekend…have a good one!
